Healthy Summer Treat – Blueberry Lemon Popsicles!
Finally….the last week of school! And then it’s summer time! I love the school year, but there’s something about celebrating the end of the school year and the beginning of summer. Lemon Blueberry Popsicles are just the way to celebrate!
The final week of school is always crazy busy and packed full of fun activities. We have a field day, assembly, field trips and a talent show planned for this week. Don’t tell the kids but all the staff have planned a special “talent” for the talent show!
The talent show is traditionally just for the students, but we decided to get into the fun with a flash mob style dance. Hopefully it will be a ton of fun and bring lots of laughter from the students.
During the hot days of summer, I like to have healthy, yummy food available for my kids. These popsicles are a perfect summer food. They will cool you off and they are good for you too! I don’t mind if my kids grab and eat these throughout the day. They can eat as many as they want, as long as they save some for me!
I make these popsicles with vanilla Greek yogurt. They are a bit tart and you could add a bit of sugar if you thought it needed it. I like the tartness of the Greek yogurt and lemon.
